Thursday 21 March 17:30 – Ways into Work

Save the date! Join us for some great hints and tips on ways into work in Sweden and Denmark with Pia and Malin from Jobb på tvärs, an Interreg project where Helsingborgs stad, Helsingør municipality and the Swedish Public Employment Service co-operate for a common labour market in the Öresund region. Pia and Malin have great experience in this area and are very knowledgeable about other related services in the municipality, so you can expect some good information from them!

 

We’re also delighted to welcome Syrian journalist Ali Alabdullah, who has written a well-received book on finding a new job in a new country (Nytt jobb i nytt land). Ali was ranked 43rd most powerful person in North-West Skåne by Helsingborgs Dagblad in December 2018 and has been featured widely in the press and on social media. He will talk about the findings from his research and give hints and tips about finding work in Sweden.

HIC is partnering with Social Business Lab again to bring you this event – we’re looking forward to an informative, inspiring evening!

Let us inspire you!

Three great speakers, lots of ideas, inspiration and activities to get you going in 2019 – you won’t want to miss this energising event! A warm welcome to our guest speakers*:

 

Veronika Nesverova – PhD student, blogger, entrepreneur

Veronika is a Ph.D. student in biochemistry at Lund University who is never satisfied with doing just one thing. On the side of her research she has opened and closed one company, founded an NGO in Lund organizing regular PechaKucha Nights, rented part of a field and started growing her own vegetables and put various challenges on herself. Right now she is testing life without sugar. She will talk about why everybody needs a side project.

Christian Altenius of Citypolarna 

Citypolarna.se is a Swedish social activity website where you meet new friends at all kinds of activities. The concept is simple: invite people to join you for a “fika”, play some “innebandy” och get out there in the woods for some serious hiking at the “Skåneleden” 🙂 Perfect if you are new to a city – and if you want to practise your Swedish as most of the users are Swedes! With more than 200 000 visits at the activities IRL since 2006, Citypolarna has become Sweden’s most popular website for social activities. Welcome to “log out and join in” at one of the 250 activities / month! 
 

Zenia Nielsen – Global Speaker, Author & Thriving Entrepreneur

Zenia Nielsen has a clear and definite burning desire to create opportunities and platforms where people get to identify their inner strength & powers, their genuine potential & calling, their true passion, and transform it into physical, mental and economic richness.

“I believe that deep down in our core, we all are driven by unconditional love and we are all here to thrive, not to “fight and survive”. And my mission is to deconstruct life as it is, demolishing all of our fears and low frequency feelings, to unfold what really matters.”

We hope you can join us!

*Due to scheduling conflicts, there has been a slight change in our guest speakers – thanks, Zenia, for stepping in!
